Publisher's Summary

After the brutal homicide of a woman, the Oslo Police Force know exactly whom to call: brilliant and unorthodox police investigator Harry Hole. When he suspects a link with one of his cold cases, it's a race against time to catch the elusive killer.

There's a new killer on the streets.

A woman is found murdered after an Internet date. The marks left on her body show the police that they are dealing with a particularly vicious killer.

He's in your house.... He's in your room....

Under pressure from the media to find the murderer, the force know there's only one man for the job. But Harry Hole is reluctant to return to the place that almost took everything from him. Until he starts to suspect a connection between this killing and his one failed case.

He's out for blood....

When another victim is found, Harry realises he will need to put everything on the line if he's to finally catch the one who got away.

    Story
    "Better than ever"
    What made the experience of listening to The Thirst the most enjoyable?

    Having waited a while for a new Jo Nesbo audiobook, I was not sure if it would be as good as previous books. I loved the detail, the imperfections and the humanity of the characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    I suppose its the underlying qualities. On the surface it is a thriller, but under it, its about people and what makes us human.


    What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

    He is one of my favourite narrators. He combines a very relaxed and laconic approach with a sense of drama.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The young girl Marta


    Any additional comments?

    I have looked online and found out some info about the way Jo Nesbo writes and find him an inspiration as a writer, and find his books very believable

    "Crap narration"

    As a truck driver, having a narrator that u can hear is crucial.
    This guy talks thru a sock!
    Make sure ur in a soundproof room before buying this book.
    Also, why is Harry Hole now Harry hulay???

    Story
    "A bit too drawn out, but still a great listen."

    I feel the overall story could have been more concise. This would have made it wonderfully thrilling and not just mediocre thrilling. However,Jo Nesbo has done it again and I still recommend this novel.

    I had tears in my eyes in parts near the end,caused by knowing the history behind the characters.

    Sean Barrett as wonderful as ever.

    Story
    "Dark side of the thirst."
    What made the experience of listening to The Thirst the most enjoyable?

    There are many twists and turns, as you would expect from a Jo Nesbo novel. they don't always work. In this Novel they do. There is an abundance of psychological investigation which keeps the reader stimulated, whether true or not is neither here nor there. As usual there the obligatory references to music and literature. Haruki Murakami gets a mention which is pleasing as he is also one author I most admire. Pink Floyd are given special treatment. For this alone the novel geserves five stars.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything. I listened in two sittings. It helps when a novel is basically based upon the entire work of British Rock band Pink Floyd.


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is one of the best readers there is available. He is Harry!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You are going to pay me for the tag line? Someone else can do their job.


    Any additional comments?

    Just listen. It will be the best Crime tnovel this year. Although the recent Philip kerr addition was very good.

    "Another edge of the seat novel."

    Quite complex in its plot, but worthwhile. Lovely narration, as ever, by Sean Barrett.
    I managed to fall in to one of Nesbo's traps, and was convinced of the guilt of one character - I do like his way of writing, and his characters are fun.

    Story
    "Brilliant as normal"

    It makes me sad to know I am going to have to wait a long time for the next Jo Nesbo book. I've read/listened to all of the Jo Nesbo books and I am addicted. Sean Barrett is just the best narrator, I could listen to him all day every day, the characters portrayal is excellent. It hard to find something else to listen after this, but I do have other favourites.

    Story
    "The very air had screams smeared on it"

    Fast moving and very entertaining, full of pop references and little tells, the most fun of the Harry Hole series. The characters are crisp and well presented and the plot is full of twists and surprises.
    A good reliable read that is hard to put down, so do not start if you do not have the time to quench the thirst.

    "He's back. Better than ever"
    If you could sum up The Thirst in three words, what would they be?

    Gripping page turner


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Thirst?

    Harry, always harry


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Sean Barrett is the consummate narrator. He could make a telephone directory sound interesting


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no, yes because it was riveting, no because I knew I'd miss Harry


    Any additional comments?

    When's the next one due

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I have no idea why people want to write this horrible stuff or why people want to read it. Never again. Should come with a warning so I don't waste my time or my money on this.
